Ouch

Did Cannonsburg 8 hour. It was like the mirror image of Lumberjack: Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Bad prep the week before the race, bad nutrition and bad bike set-up.

In the end, it was more like the 4 hours of Cannonsburg. Other people had good rides: Dan was on fire and beat all the solo riders and teams; Shawn put the hut on folks and pulled off 9 laps; Nate and Sheri pulled out a 2nd Place in the 2 Person category. Good times.

With no back-up bike in sight, I am having second thoughts about 9 mile. If I skip it, I can do Wilderness and not mess around with the E100.

Decisions, Decisions...

Do Wilderness! All the cool kids are going to be there.

skip 9 mile. I just did my first 24 hour of the season and all I could think about the entire time was "why am I doing this?"

Danielle,

The rule is "No comments on a 24-hour race until at least 48 hours after the race ends". You know we have these rules for our protection...

Nutrition is such a vital part of endurance racing. I struggle with it most of time at races. Fickle stomach.

I hope you don't have any more problems this year.

Never been to Wilderness. I wasn't too stoked on 24/9.

Dammit, Corey. We're suppose to be talking Joe into 9 Mile, not out of it.

You know the two dollars I gave you to post a comment? I want them back.
